Volunteer

At KKH, we understand that a patient’s emotional and social wellbeing are important to the healing process. That’s why we’ve developed programmes to make each patient’s stay in hospital a more pleasant one.

Our hospital's volunteers play an important role in the lives of our patients. We need enthusiastic and committed individuals to join us. If you are above 16 years old, bilingual (preferably English and a second language), are in good general health and enjoy working with people, WE WANT YOU!

If you wish to make a donation to the paediatric patients, please note these guidelines:

  • No food & drink items
  • No toys with sharp edges and/or small parts
  • No toys with toxic paint
  • No furry toys
